Worst Movie and Waste of Time
16 November 2014 | by dpchandraSee all my reviews

Mixture of all previous movies. Nothing new. Worst acting by mahesh babu. He tried to act like pawan kalyan in gabbar singh. But he totally failed.

Story:- ​​Encounter ​specialist ​Shankar (Mahesh Babu) is posted to a small town called Bukkapattanam. The entire area is dominated by a ​ dreaded don called Damodar (Sonu Sood),​ who runs illegal businesses by threatening the poor. Shankar decides to take ​things in his hands, and starts ​planning ​Damodar's decline. ​Midway through, he comes to know about a shocking truth about Damodar, which relates back to his family. What is that truth ? How does Shankar manage to destroy Damodar​ and his empire ? and Where does Saroja(Tamannah) and Delhi Suri(Brahmanandam) fit in this entire set up ?. To know answers to all these questions, you need to watch the film on big screen. Plus Points:- Aagadu is an out and out Mahesh Babu film. Right from the word go, it ​i​s ​Mahesh's histrionics which dominate the show completely. As usual, Mahesh looks extremely dashing, and carries out his role of ​a cop supremely well. The way he goes about his character, and blends himself into the script​,​ is quite amazing. Interesting factor to watch out for is the fun element that he brings in his character, which is filled with punch dialogues and satires. Tamannah looks gorgeous as the village belle, and is a perfect Jodi for Mahesh Babu. First half of the film is highly entertaining, and brings in a lot of fun. Shruthi Haasan's song is a special bonus to the masses as she oozes ​sensuous charm and glamour. Brahmanandam brings in decent laughs in the second half, and his dance episode in particular is quite hilarious. ​ ​ ​ Nasser ​is superb as the police constable​,​​ and his scenes with Mahesh and Vennela Kishore have come out quite well. ​S​ongs ​are entertaining and ​have also been shot well​. Rajendra Prasad, Posani and Ashish Vidhyardhi are decent in their respective roles. ​M​inus Points:- As expected, even Aagadu has the same trademark Sreenu Vaitla set up and comedy. The entire second half has been spoofed on his earlier films like Dookudu. Once the so called twists are unleashed, the film becomes predictable.
